  1. Stumps - day one

    And so day one of the latest round of County Championship fixtures draws to a close.

    It's been a memorable one for 20-year-old Andrew Umeed who scored a century on his Warwickshire debut.

    Kyle Jarvis will also enjoy his evening - the Lancashire paceman picked up six wickets against Surrey.

    We'll be back tomorrow with live text and radio coverage from 10:55 BST. Until then, goodbye.

  3. Stumps at Edgbaston

    Warwickshire 273-8 v Durham

    It's also stumps in Birmingham. Warwickshire have collapsed from 195-1 to 273-8.

    But the day will be remembered for debutant Andrew Umeed's century.

  4. Close of play at Old Trafford

    Surrey 191 v Lancashire 16-0

    Lancashire close the day unscathed as Haseeb Hameed and Tom Smith see out 12 overs in tricky conditions.

    Earlier Kyle Jarvis picked up six wickets as Surrey were skittled for 191. A day of dominance for the Red Rose county.

  5. Stumps at Grace Road

    Leicestershire 253-4 v Worcestershire

    That's it for the day between Leicestershire and Worcestershire after a little five-over mini-session.

    Half-centuries for Paul Horton, Angus Robson and Neil Dexter have put the hosts in command.

    Mark Pettini will resume on 45 on day two.

  6. Close of play at The Ageas Bowl

    Hampshire 149-4 v Notts

    What a really good effort from Hampshire's Sean Ervine (38 not out) and Tom Alsop (32 not out) in the final hour.

    The pair have put on 65 for the fifth wicket and have given something for the hosts to build on in the morning.

  7. Warwickshire collapsing

    Warwickshire 259-8 v Durham

    This is some capitulation from Warwickshire. Keith Barker edges Brydon Carse behind and the Bears are suddenly eight down.

    Who saw this coming when they were 195-1?!

  8. Close of play

    Glam 260 v Essex 29-1 - stumps

    BBC Wales Sport's Nick Webb reports from Cardiff at stumps:

    "Essex survive relatively unscathed, blocking out the last hour of the day after losing Nick Browne lbw to Graham Wagg for three - a mere 252 short of his last effort.

    "Graham Napier's 5-82 was the starring performance of the day as Essex's seamers bowled consistent lines and induced a Glamorgan slump in the afternoon.

    "Chris Cooke's 63 was the top score, while a stand of 79 between Andrew Salter and Craig Meschede put the middle-order's efforts into context."

  9. WICKET Woakes (c Jennings b Weighell 4)

    Warwickshire 255-7 v Durham

    Oh my word, this is some turnaround by Durham in the evening session.

    England and Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes is now back in the hutch as he becomes James Weighell's fourth victim - out to a stunning leg-side catch by Keaton Jennings.

    Warwickshire have lost 6-60.

  10. Close of play

    Northants 134-7 v Gloucestershire

    Time is indeed called in Bristol. The shortened day has belonged to Gloucestershire paceman Josh Shaw who picked up four wickets to leave Northants in strife.

  11. Play resuming

    Leicestershire 245-4 v Worcestershire

    They're coming back on for five overs at Grace Road. I guess Worcestershire will be happy to play as many overs as they can after losing so much time this season already.

    Although I'm not a fan - why can't they just start earlier tomorrow?!

  12. Stumps at Derby

    Derbyshire 387-7 v Kent

    A day belonging to Derbyshire's batsmen comes to a close with Shiv Thakor unbeaten on 86.

    Earlier there was a century for Wayne Madsen and New Zealand international Neil Broom fell for 96.

    Derbyshire in the driving seat.

  13. WICKET Ambrose (c Borthwick b Weighell 6)

    Warwickshire 247-6 v Durham

    Hmm, Warwickshire are really wobbling now. Tim Ambrose is caught by Scott Borthwick at second slip off James Weighell and the Bears have now lost 5-49 since the resumption after the rain break.

  14. Century and out for Andrew Umeed

    Warwickshire 243-5 v Durham

    Warwickshire debutant Andrew Umeed brings up a well-deserved century at Edgbaston, but two balls later he's out. 

    Umeed pulls Graham Onions to mid-wicket, but gets a standing ovation as he leaves the field.

    What a shame for the 20-year-old, but nonetheless he's put his side in a strong position.  

  15. BreakingSURREY ALL OUT

    Surrey 191 v Lancashire

    Rory Burns is the last man out for Surrey, lbw to Neil Wagner for 92.

    It was a bit of a solo effort from the opener and Surrey's bowlers will now have to shine.

  16. Close of play at Lord's

    Somerset 219-2 v Middlesex

    With no sign of the light improving, play is called off for the day between Middlesex and Somerset.

    It's been Somerset's day with Chris Rogers unbeaten on 104 and James Hildreth set to resume with his Australian partner on 60 in the morning.

  17. Rain stops play

    Northants 134-7 v Gloucestershire

    See, even BBC Radio Northampton's Alex Winter agrees!

  18. Bad light stops play

    Northants 134-7 v Gloucestershire

    It's been a stop-start day at Bristol and they're off for bad light again. But not before Josh Shaw picks up his fourth wicket - Seekkuge Prasanna top edging the paceman into the hands of David Payne.

    I know I had my fingers burnt earlier when trying to make a weather/close of play prediction, but surely that will be stumps!

  19. Wagner strikes!

    Surrey 183-9 v Lancashire

    Surrey's first innings is rapidly coming to a close at Old Trafford. New Zealand paceman Neil Wagner dismisses skipper Gareth Batty and Mathew Pillans in the space of three balls.

    Opener Rory Burns is still there, battling, on 87.

  20. Play resumes at The Ageas Bowl

    Hampshire 106-4 v Notts

    I mentioned earlier that it could be it for the day at The Ageas Bowl after another rain shower. Shows what I know - they're coming back out!
